On Aug. 13, our neighbors and resident liveaboards at Gangplank Marina opened up their homes to the public to show what it’s like living on the water in our nation’s capitol. All 300 tickets were sold, and proceeds from the tour were donated to the Earth Conservation Corps and the Alice Ferguson Foundation. If you couldn’t make it to the tour, we hope you enjoy this photo tour. Hopefully, our neighbors will hold this event again next year!
